    Printing pages in reverse? (WIN XP 5.1 SP1)

    When I try to print off of the Internet, it prints the pages from the page to the first page.
    This occurs whether I use the Print icon, or the Menu command.
    Where can I find the setting to print the pages in order ?

    Thank you !
    Michael

    I'm guessing you mean from the last page to the first page?

    I would suspect it may be in your printer setup. Typically you can set an inkjet printer (that outputs the printed page face up) to print in reverse order so that the finished pile gives you the first readable page on top. Look for a setting that says 'Print from the last page' or 'Reverse order'.

    Michael,
    Depends on what type of printer you have. I have a HP and you can click on Control Panel>Printers & Faxes>Properties>Printer preferences>features and uncheck the "start printing from last page" box.
    Other printers may be similar.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    IF "Front to Back" prints the pages in the wrong order, see if "Back to Front" prints them the way you want.
